COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A robust renovation of the India Pale Ale. Assertive dry-hoppying provides an aromatic telltale nose, indicative of the bitter symphony to follow. Bold hop character with lively grapefruit and citrus notes. 20° Plato, Alc. 9.4% by Vol.

Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2009
Bottle: Poured a slightly hazy dirty orangey color ale with a small foamy head with OK retention and no lacing. Aroma of sweet malt base with light floral hops. Taste is too sweet for the style with some floral hops though not as much as expected. Body is above average with medium carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I found that this was way too sweet for the style and not enough hops presence – bottle has been kept in fridge since I received it though I wonder if this was maybe a bit too aged.

topherh (1915) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - DEC 10, 2009
Pours a lightly hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is citrus and piney hops, caramel, malt, and floral notes. Flavor is lots of hoppy bitterness, citrus, pine, caramel malt, and hints of honey.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2009
Mildly hazed amber with a large pillowy beige frothy lace maker of a head. Aroma of citrus, dough, light pine, caramel, grapefruit and sticky hops. Taste of alcohol, sticky resinous west coast hops, tasty malt, pine, orange and fruit. Mostly balanced with a little semi-candied sweetness. Finishes up moderately bitter with some alcohol bite back. Overall, a pretty good brew.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 8, 2009
Pours orange/brown with a nice off white head. Aroma is big citrusy, spicy hop. Flavor is full of citrusy, resiny hop with a nice bitter finish. Very good.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Bomber courtesy of sparky27. Citrus hops seemed to have mellowed out with more sweet sugary malt and alcohol on the nose. Copper body with off white head and a good sugar lacr coating on glass. Alcohol was noticable along with the dry hop bittering. Mellow citrus flavor for me, wish it would of had more. Dry palate and heavy filling brew. Thanks Eric.

hayduke (3767) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 8, 2009
This 22 oz bottle was via a trade with Strykzone. Thanks. It poured an orange color with a very robust white head and very distinct lacing rings. The nose is of citrus and floral hops, with a hint of pine. Medium mouthfeel and a little alcohol burn. Flavor is bitter and full of citrus. Long bitter finish. A very nice DIPA.

SpringsLicker (3251) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 26, 2009
Deep copper body with a good off-white head. Light hop aroma, some fruitiness. Watery weak palate with almost no hop bitterness or malt sweetness going on in the flavor department. Thin. Real disappointment.

Indra (2707) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 22, 2009
22oz. bottle. Fruity, hoppy and lightly sweet aroma, strong pine and citrus overtones, along with lighter notes of honey, caramel, flowers and leafy herbs. Hazy light-medium orange-amber color, head is fine but lasting. Flavor profile is strongly bitter and full of citric hop flavor as promised, some woody tones and background toasty, caramel malt sweetness becoming apparent, the finish showing a bit of astringency, peppery spice and lingering grapefruit character. Dry, lightly oily palate, body is full but not overly so. Alcohol presence is nowhere to be found. Tasty enough.

travita (4417) - Frisco, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Bottle thanks to blutt59. The smell is hops, pine, and a little light. The look is copper colored with a whitish head. The taste is some bitterness, hops, and pine.
